To-Do for last week October 12th – 18th:
- Continue sewing and cutting for the Two by Four QAL – √ Done
- Finish up the Thanksgiving table topper – √ Done
- Start working on a Christmas topper for Nicole – √ Done
The Ghastly Ghouls blog hop started yesterday and I shared all of the participants in a post, if you’d like to check it out! Our day is Thursday.
Last week, we shared our pathetic progress with Katy and Deanna in their Two By Four QAL. Since then, more cutting on the dark fabrics has happened but we aren’t that much closer to having a quilt top. There is still oodles of sewing in my very near future but that’s okay. A leader/ender project is supposed to take some time, right?!!
Yup, this weekend I was much more productive!! I can’t say “we” because Sue wasn’t down and out last weekend – it was all me. It’s a bit hard to see but I did a quick crosshatch on this topper.
The best thing was when Sissy saw it and said, “I can hardly wait to put this one out!” We are all happy with the finished product. Sue pulled out our Thanksgiving stuffed pilgrims to add to the photo.
A Christmas topper similar to the one we made for ourselves is in the works for Nicole. We called ours Sugar Cubes and Cookies and we stuck with our favorite hexagon shape for these toppers.
I’ll start the appliqué process soon and with any luck this will be ready for the table right after Thanksgiving. I suspect that’s when she starts decorating for the holidays.
A Little Extra To-Do!
I had to take in Addison’s leggings now that the weather is getting colder. That girl is so skinny that her legging just slide down those nonexistent hips. Auntie Sue and I were nearly mooned when her favorite pink legging slid down and almost took her undies with them. We can’t have that, now can we?!!
